Coastal Club — I Get Nervous Sometimes

Soul Step Records are so fired up to share that they are welcoming back to Soul Step for a second release is Cincinnati’s own COASTAL CLUB. After a strong demand for the 45 single release of “Shake You / Make its By” they get to share on vinyl the newest release from Coastal Club, “ ~ i get nervous sometimes ~” 

~ i get nervous sometimes ~  is the best sunny indie pop that Ohio could produce! This album is for fans of Hippo Campus, COIN, and Bombay Cycle Club. It’s hard to imagine these sun-soaked indie pop jams are from the Midwest! Coastal Club will continue to hit your ears with hook after hook after hook. This is an album of delicious ear-worms that will stay in your head all day long. Put this album on your turntable and watch your life get bright and sunny real quick. 

The Queen City quartet of indie surf rockers was formed in 2017 by a group of friends looking to blend indie rock and pop with the surf music of the 60’s and 70’s. While based in landlocked Ohio, there is a longing for the coast found in their romantic, beachy melodies. Coastal Club has tirelessly played and continued to hone in on their unique sound. With the release of “ ~ i get nervous sometimes ~” we are presented with SIX brand new Coastal Club tracks and the vinyl specifically carries the tracks from their previous self-titled EP. Just as a special treat for the vinyl fans out there. 

Soul Step Records will be releasing “~ i get nervous sometimes ~” by Coastal Club to Soul Step Record Subscribers on Saturday, September  5th. The general public sale will begin on Monday, September 7th. 

There will be a limited to 100 Lipstick Red vinyl variant in addition to the standard black vinyl. Soul Step Records highly encourages fans to sign up to be a Soul Step Subscriber for free, as many of our limited edition vinyl sell out very quickly. 

Michael Sarian — New Aurora

Airto Moreira — Seeds On The Ground

Airto Seeds on the Ground LP
450

Airto’s second album, and second and last release for the Buddah label, brought back largely the same crew that appeared on his debut record Natural Feelings (also reissued by Real Gone): vocalist (and wife) Flora Purim, composer and multi-instrumentalist Hermeto Pascoal, and bassist Ron Carter, with contributions from Dom Um Ramão (who later replaced Airto in Weather Report) and Severino De Oliveira a.k.a. Sivuca. Given Airto’s connections to Miles Davis, Weather Report, and Return to

Forever, Seeds on the Ground could easily get lumped into the jazz fusion category. But that would be a mistake. This totally unclassifiable (and, by the way, exceedingly rare) album was no mere blend of rock and jazz influences. Instead, Seeds on the Ground was truly a fusion, an ecstatic melding of bossa nova, psychedelic rock, Brazilian folk, Latin jazz, free jazz, and what we call nowadays “world music.”

If that sounds a bit calculated or intimidating, it’s not; what makes this album so compelling is how organic and intimate it all sounds. Airto played with probably the three most legendary fusion groups in jazz history, and later released a bunch of albums, many for the CTI label. 

Available for a limited time from Real Gone Music.

Emily Keener — I Do Not Have To Be Good

10 Cleveland Songs We're Listening To This Spring

The vulnerability found in Emily Keener’s music traces back to a distinctly Midwest upbringing, characterized by the canopied forests that surrounded her home. It’s here Keener pensively grappled with the rigid qualities of rustbelt spiritualism. And where she experienced the literal and figurative isolation as a homeschooled country-dweller. 

On her new album – I Do Not Have To Be Good, she subtly sheds her Americana roots and embraces atmospheric moody indie folk, equally tender and powerful as it unfolds. Taking almost complete creative control throughout the recording process, the only fingerprint is Keener’s own. This is her; raw, exposed, very honest in her emotional depth. 

Delta Rae — The Light

When Delta Rae first took flight in North Carolina roughly a decade ago, it was a folky four-piece centered around the hair-raising harmonies and songwriting of the Hölljes siblings—Ian (guitar, vocals), Eric (piano, guitar, vocals), and Brittany (vocals)—and their longtime friend, Liz Hopkins (vocals). As the band’s sound began to evolve, so did its lineup, and the following year, they added Mike McKee (drums) and Grant Emerson (bass) to help flesh out their singular mix of Gothic American roots and gospel-tinged country…

On the strength of an early EP, the band landed a major label deal for their full-length debut, Carry The Fire, which came out to rave reviews in 2012, with Rolling Stone calling it a “unique blend of blue-eyed soul and Americana rock” and NPR hailing the “bluesy roar” of its “modern folklore.” The music racked up more than 30 million streams on Spotify, landed the band in the studio with Lindsey Buckingham, and helped earn them performances on The Tonight Show and Conan alongside festival slots at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and more. In 2015, they followed it up with After It All, a similarly acclaimed sophomore album that debuted at #3 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart.

By the time the band moved to Nashville and signed to powerhouse label Big Machine in 2017, they seemed poised for superstardom, but instead, Delta Rae found themselves in limbo, unable to record the music they felt most passionate about. Rather than give up, the band struck out on their own, leaving their contract and launching a Kickstarter in hopes of raising the $30,000 they needed to fund the record themselves. Within hours, they’d blown through their goal, and by the time the dust had settled, they’d shattered all previous records, raising nearly a half-million dollars from supporters to become the most-funded indie band in the platform’s history.

The Light marks Delta Rae’s first full-length independent release as well as the start of a bold new chapter that will include an upcoming companion album (The Dark), an immersive theater production, a live record, and more.

Indie Retail ONLINE STORE Directory

To be plain, without the support of the hundreds of wonderful independent retailers around the country and world, there would be no pressing plants.

Records stores, big and small, have supported us, and our customers large and small, from the beginning by stocking records and informing their customer base about our operation and wonderful stable of artists. These proud purveyors are facing a challenge many small businesses are currently facing: how to keep the doors open in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The answer for many is to move an online/mail order model temporarily in order to get through the current storm. So, if you’re thinking about buying a record online (and you’re not buying it from the artist directly), consider purchasing it from a wonderful independent retailer. Check out this list put together by our buds at Colemine Records. Keep it independent!

Introducing Penrose Records – Proudly Pressed At Gotta Groove

Founded by Daptone Records’ own Bosco Mann after building a new recording studio in his hometown of Riverside, California, Penrose Records will showcase the most exciting acts emerging on the blossoming SoCal souldies scene today. For its inaugural release, the label offers up five singles by five exciting new artists: Thee Sacred Souls from San Diego; Jason Joshua from Miami; East L.A. mainstays Thee Sinseers, and The Altons; and Altadena veterans, Los Yesterdays.

All five 45s + digital compilation will be available April 10th.

Thee Sacred Souls
Thee Sacred Souls “Can I Call You Rose?” / “Weak For Your Love”

What better way to christen Daptone’s fledgling imprint Penrose Records than with “Can I Call You Rose?,” a sumptuous and serendipitously titled mid-tempo premier by San Diego’s blossoming young soul serenaders, Thee Sacred Souls. Stepping off the stage after their very first club date, Josh, Sal, and Alex were tugged aside by producer Bosco Mann whose seasoned ears had been tickled by their set. Backs were patted, hands were shook, and three days later heads were bobbing in Mann’s Riverside studio, as the Souls laid their first notes to tape. 
Thee Sinseers
Thee Sinseers “Seems Like” / Instrumental

As one of the most popular groups on today’s So-Cal soul scene, Thee Sinseers need little introduction. Their performance of “Seems Like” live at the Recordium went viral to the tune of over a million views, making them thee in-demand group for souldies parties up and down the coast. When asked what song they wanted to cut for their Penrose session, singer, songwriter, and man-who-can-play-any-instrument, Joey Quiñones didn’t hesitate to answer, “We need a proper recording of that song.” And so it was done. In the candle-lit studio, the band delivered unto us a starkly intimate rendition, stripping the tune down to its underthings, and laying bare Joe Q’s euphonious exhortations.
Jason Joshua
Jason Joshua & the Penrose Scholars “Language of Love” / “La Vida Es Fría”

Since exploding onto the scene with his debut 45, “Rosegold” and it’s anthemic follow-up, “I Don’t Care,” Jason Joshua has built a dedicated following for his distinctive latin-soul sound and his notoriously titillating live performances. Following a string of homegrown Miami recordings with the Beholders on his own Mango Hill Records, Jason hopped the plane to Riverside to gather the Penrose Scholars for a session with his friend Bosco Mann, where he was eager to prove that just like a record, there’s more than one side to a man.
The Altons
The Altons  “When You Go (That’s When You’ll Know)” / “Over and Over”

Though Bryan Ponce and Adriana Flores share the stage with Joey Q as part of the East LA souldies outfit Thee Sinseers, they really step into the spotlight with The Altons, a group they themselves founded along with drummer Caitlin Moss and bassist Gabriel Maldonado . On this their debut single on Penrose, Bryan sings the lead with a smoky-sweet falsetto that bends tenderly from growl to howl and back again. The group takes a turn through a classic Miracles-style mid-tempo groove on the A-side, leaving you helplessly addicted to their sweet eponymous refrain, When you go that’s when you’ll know… Watch the video for “When You Go (That’s When You’ll Know)”.
Los Yesterdays
Los Yesterdays “Tell Me I’m Dreaming” / “Time”

Los Yesterdays originated in an Altadena garage when Gabriel Rowland teamed up with his old friend Victor Benavides. Rowland, a long time drummer and eccentric creator of multitudinous soulful things, took charge of recording as well as playing all the instruments, while Benavides wrote and cut vocals. The project pretty much stayed in their garage for a few years until a mutual connection brought them to the attention of Tom Brenneck and Gabe Roth, who both dug the songs and offered to join in on guitar and bass respectively so that the duo might be able to perform their music live. The four soon found a handful of gigs behind them and a Penrose recording date in front of them. 
 



KAINA — Next To The Sun

Next to the Sun

KAINA’s Next to the Sun was one of the VMP team’s favorite releases in 2019, as we loved the album’s dedications to KAINA’s native Chicago, and her family and the communities that raised her. Dripping in bright production and buoyed by her brighter voice, Next to the Sun is an album about soldiering on despite it all, and remembering to love who you are and where you came from.

For a limited time, you can obtain the Vinyl Me Please version of this album (pressed at Gotta Groove) on opaque blue vinyl.

Whiskey Basterds — Redemption on Main St.

Whiskey Basterds’ debut album Redemption on Main St., is now available!  Written over the course of three years in Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, and Ojai, CA, it was produced by Ken Eros and April Theriault, recorded and mixed at Eros Creative and Sound, and mastered by Eric Boulanger at The Bakery.
